I am in my early 20's and about 6 months ago I had my one and only sexual encounter. I received unprotected oral sex as well as performed oral sex on her. We had vaginal intercourse (protected). About two weeks ago I started having some slight discomfort when urinating. I thought it was a UTI but the symptons did not go away. I went to the Dr. and he said I had no bacteria in my urine. He said sometimes gonorrhea and chlymedia have no symptoms but he said it was unlikely either of those. He gave me Cipro and Doxy and I now feel better. The Doc asked if I wanted my urine sent off for a culture and I said no (not sure why. guess i was scared).
1. What are the chances of it being Gonorrhea or Chlymedia?
2. Is it normal for symptoms to occur 6 months later?
3. What are my risks for other STD's? HIV, HEP C, etc?
